Public sector contract awarded

The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman and the Local Government Ombudsman have awarded Incentive QAS a three-year contract (including options for two further years) to supply cleaning and recycling services at their offices in London’s Millbank Tower, Coventry and Manchester. The contract has been awarded following an evaluation by both organisations. It is partly designed to help meet CSR objectives with an added emphasis on recycling.

The cleaning service incorporates daily office cleaning, periodic deep cleaning, window cleaning, washroom services and segregated recycling management for London and Manchester.

With minimal waste storage in each of the premises, the recycling service required an innovative approach that would provide a cost effective solution whilst meeting the aims of both organisations to increase recycling. Incentive QAS worked closely with two separate recycling experts in London and Manchester in order to obtain the optimum agreement for each location. All waste management statistics will be centrally collated and produced on a monthly basis by Incentive QAS.

Other decisive factors in the contract award included Incentive QAS' environmentally friendly range of cleaning chemicals, its well-defined approach to delivering day, evening and periodic cleaning, bespoke KPIs for the contract, and clear off site management input.
